Lovely location, great customer service. I proposed to my girlfriend on a dive and it would not have been possible without the discrete staff and dive guide. Everyone kept it a great secret and couldn't do enough to ensure my plans worked. She said yes and we were treated like royalty for all 5 days. Food selection is limited but... More

this one resort looks quiet nice and of course nicer than Miniloc ones. The. Win difference is that there's is a swimming pool! Which is nice. Pool villas are the best ones but if you'll choose other rooms, they are really spacious enough. Let's say well done effect in general. However in my opinion they should change all the wooden...

We stayed in this resort several years back and the one HUGE disappointment after it was touted as Eco/Sustainability focussed was the horrible diving we experienced. No one tells you that the local coral reefs are all DEAD due to Dynamite Fishing... until recently a popular fishing technique. It was heart wrenching to drop below the oceans surface only to...

First, understand it is an island, it is remote. All transportation is by boat. I say that to prepare you, there is no going to town to pick something up if you forget it. We experienced an unexpected and stressful glitch from our travel agency. The Property Manager made every effort to make our vacation fantastic. The staff is attentive... More

The nice thing about staying in any El Nido resort is they give you a tour of their other resorts and beach clubs for free. Everything is included in your package. You can opt to have breakfast or lunch at Miniloc or Lagen. You can visit their beach clubs and spend a few hours there. The tour guides are very... More

Beautiful but not budget friendly yes for the reason that its expensive but your money is worth spending for if you stay here. I stayed here for 2D1N only because I have to travel to other parts of Palawan. What I like on this resort is that the landscape is simply stunning.

It was really a get-away - airplane from manila, a little jeepney ride from the airport to the boat port, an hour boat-ride and finally we're in Lagen Island! All the views were scenic may it be fronting the resort or the sea. We were greeted with refreshing cold towel and drinks. Our room which was located on the 2nd... More

I came here to just rest for a night and to cap off my Palawan trip. It was just a beautiful place. The boat transfer alone offered a great view of the islands and it was already worth what I paid for the entire package. The service was great. The staff, everyone of them, knew my name and showed that... More

We'd been to Miniloc, also part of the El Nido group, and about 10 minutes away from Lagen by boat, a couple of years ago. We were impressed by the quality of service, the range of activities, and the location. Of course, we were not impressed by the price which we thought was absurd for what we got. But we... More
